The so-called ‘lost generation’ of German composers includes many whose lives were shaped by events after 1933. One such was Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling, a composer of strong spiritual depth whose 1953 Violin Concerto was rooted in his wartime experiences. Ingeniously constructed, it subtly evokes the influence of Bach, without at all embracing neo-classicism. Its moving slow movement is followed by a finale that marries virtuosity with dance-like magnetism. The Partita is much admired for its colour and vitality, whilst the Polonaise is a lighter work, brimming with high spirits.

 "... Schwarz-Schilling will appeal to anyone who admires his broadly contemporary compatriots Pfitzner, Furtwängler and Hindemith."

 
Byzantion - MusicWeb-International.com - 11 September 2013

" Schwarz-Schilling…was a highly gifted and skillful composer who ... wrote superbly crafted and imaginative music, deeply individual in its own way, but not the least au courant. So it’s good to see that Naxos has continued its releases devoted to him. It’s a great pleasure to hear this wonderful music—most of it known to me for many years from earlier—and often inferior—LPs and CDs, here at last beautifully played and vividly recorded. Partita is a half-hour, four-movement assemblage that, as its title suggests, pays homage to 18th Century forms and procedures. As such it sometimes suggests Stravinsky’s re-creations of earlier music, as in the opening, a neo-Bachian ‘Entrata’, though Schwarz-Schilling’s temperament is (as you’d expect) more German and more romantic than Stravinsky’s. Stately it is, yes, but also passionate—in the composer’s always decorous, never hysterical way. From 1936, the Polonaise is a 6-minute dance on two catchy tunes, one fleet and lithe, the other melodious and lilting. The three-movement Violin Concerto presents elements apparent in the earlier music with the same readily identifiable personality but more subtlety and depth of emotion. The central aria is especially songful and tender, and the final allegro dazzling in its marriage of intricacy and high-spirited virtuosity."

Mark L Lehman - American Record Guide - September 2012


"It begins with two light works, a Polonaise composed for the 1936 Pyrmont Music Festival, and a five-movement Partita contrasting lively dances with serene interludes. Schwarz-Schilling is at his best in the remarkable violin concerto…This is a concerto that deserves to be heard, and it receives a spectacular performance by the young violinist Kirill Troussov, whose impeccable technique and beauty of tone do much for this score. The orchestra and conductor are obviously dedicated to this music, and the recording, made in Germany May 27-29, has outstanding sonics. Investigate this—the violin concerto is special."
